Google AdWords now allows users to advertise on Google Maps in Australia. This is a big boost for geo-targeting, with maps displaying up to four ads per page, it’s also a reminder for those of you who haven’t registered with Google Maps to get in there now!
If your industry is not well represented there’s a chance for you to make it to the first page without having to pay for AdWords. Oh and it helps to add what you do to your business name. For example, I registered BlackMax Media, Web Design Sydney and SEO Sydney, and now when you type SEO or web design into business maps search, I appear on the first page. Registering is free… http://maps.google.com.au/
